Consumer Complaint: I applied for an apartment online. Was approved but i never signed a lease due to some unforeseen circumstances. I informed the company after approval, nothing was due to me online as the system allowed me to proceed and complete application. They sent a letter to my previous address which i tried to resolve with the office but they could not hear any of it and sent to collection. I responded and paid the XXXX application as per their website and form signed. The collection company has further sent my account to collection. I dont have a problem to pay but i want justice.
